We met up with Peter Hopwood at TNW Europe Conference to get his top 3 tips for delivering a smashing pitch for your startup. Peter is hosting a session at TNW and he is also a startup pitching coach.

These are his top 3 tips:

  1. Boost your energy level. Think about why you are doing what you are doing, and the message you have to share. Your audience will feel excited, if you are.
  2. Use pauses to your advantage. All the great presenters know how to use silence to their advantage. This gives your audience a chance to digest your information. I also helps you think about what’s coming next.
  3. Deal with your nerves. Think about a song that you like, that calms your nerves and also pumps you up.
